    "My experience in Life Sciences Secondary School has been very diverse. I entered in my sophomore year and at first it felt welcoming and safe but as time passed it wasn't like that. The building I general is kept clean but the bathrooms are and issue. Some teachers did motivate me to keep trying as hard as I could during these past 2 years. However some teachers are very non caring and just hand out work based on videos. Personally I've had times when I haven't felt safe in school because of fights that have occurred. However most of the times I do safe. The school has a friendly staff and friendly security who worry about your safety. Academic wise some teachers do challenge you and some teachers don't. Overall I have achieved many great things in the school due to my teachers and especially my guidance counselor who motivates me and other students to try our best and give more than what is expected from us."

    "Our principal did not throw away all of the books. I have them in all my classes. There are a lot of good teachers in Life Science but there are bad ones too. They are mean to kids and kick them out of class. The principal won't let them. The bad teachers don't like the new principal. The principal listens to me. I go to her office a lot to tell her when I have problems. She also talks to me during my lunch and gives me granolla bars if I am hungry."

    "Administration threw out all books, while not providing computers, saying they are obsolete! This school FAILS on all levels! It does not educate! No homework! 6th to 8th grade state math test was passed by only 5% of students! 8th grade English, only 9% passed! Only 2 computers per class, many not connected to Internet! This school is a disgusting excuse for and educational institution! It should be totally restaffed with competent staff, or CLOSED!

    "What I enjoyed about life sciences secondary is the school exposes students to a rich and diverse group of peers which whom they can relate to. The school has amazing staff members who are decicated to help their students. However, there are occasionally incidents that happen during the school year but the students create wonderful relationships with other people within the school so they have at least one individual to talk to during any incidents."
